Providing Quality Child Care & Early Education

Pre-Kindergarten Education Program — 3 - 5 Years Old

In keeping with our educational philosophy, Children on the Green uses The Creative Curriculum, an evidence-based, state Dept. of Education-approved curriculum. With children’s interests as the jumping-off point, teachers plan developmentally appropriate activities that foster each child's social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth. In Pre-K, children’s days are filled with structured activities and free play in literacy, math, art, science, music, blocks, dramatic play and movement. Our pre-K kids learn to love learning and graduate ready for kindergarten!

Tools of the Mind emphasizes the development of cognitive and academic skills in literacy, mathematics and science. Each day children choose an area
to play in from one of six centers: blocks, dramatic play, art, table toys, science and literacy. They then come up with an oral plan, telling the teacher what they are going to do. They then represent their play in a drawing and
